Coming To NOW (TV) December 2021: Suicide Squad Is Here

This post may contain affiliate links*

The cold weather, not to mention the holidays, are a great excuse to sit at home and watch TV. So, NOW’s streaming service is here to help – with Dan Brown’s The Lost Symbol, the Sex and The City revival, blockbusters like Godzilla vs Kong and The Suicide Squad, Premier League – and more.

NOW (Formerly NOW TV- they changed their name earlier this year) is Sky’s no-contract streaming service – a cheaper TV platform that gives you flexible packages – “memberships” of content that can be watched on a variety of streaming devices.

The plans include the Entertainment Membership for TV shows and Kids content, the Cinema Membership for movies, and the Sky Sports Membership. (See our full NOW review here).

This month, NOW also added content from Peacock – an American streaming service – with some of its films and TV shows now baked into NOW at no extra cost.

Things may change and more content might get added later in the month – but these are the main highlights for December 2021:
